Potel-Aviron, Chenas, ‘Vieilles Vignes’, 2004

July 28, 2008

~$14US, 100% Gamay Noir, Chenas, Cru Beaujolais, France

Ruby color. Pencils and crayons and cherries. Zesty acidity but a lovely round ripeness to the fruit. Complexity via herbal notes in the finish – sage and thyme, with a little woody asparagus. Medium bodied an edge of firm tannins to close the deal. A very fine Chenas with at least  2 more years of upside potential.
